Don’t miss it, the all new WordPress, even more glimmer and certainly a plethora of new frightening bugs under the hood …
Business as usual, another security update for WordPress. Do it now or bear the consequences …
Ein neues Update, 50 Fixes an der Zahl … alle kleinerer Natur. Wer WP kennt und deren Informationspolitik, wird wohl dieses Update umgehend aufspielen und keineswegs auf die lange Bank schieben …

Läuft hier seit RC3 ohne Probleme :-)
Thomas Mackenzie alerted us to a problem where logged in users can peek at trashed posts belonging to other authors. If you have untrusted users signed up on your blog and sensitive posts in the trash, you should upgrade to 2.9.2.
… business as usual
Did an update to 2.9.1. Works like a charm so far. Over and out …
Unfortunately, the recent 2.9 release triggered a bug in certain versions of PHP’s curl extension. With these versions of curl, scheduled posts and pingbacks are not processed correctly. To fix this problem as well as a handful of other, lesser issues, we are quickly releasing 2.9.1, the first maintenance release of the 2.9 line.
Oh dear … screw them for their hasty releases. I’m sick of this development policy. Unfortunately it’s getting worse instead better. Time for an alternative …
Ich habe hier just das Update von 2.9 RC1 auf 2.9 vorgenommen, läuft weiterhin rund :-)
Wow — WordPress macht mal zur Abwechslung auf beinharte Security.
- A fix for the Trackback Denial-of-Service attack that is currently being seen.
- Removal of areas within the code where php code in variables was evaluated.
- Switched the file upload functionality to be whitelisted for all users including Admins.
- Retiring of the two importers of Tag data from old plugins.

Das Update wurde hier just vollzogen und ich kann diese Vorgehensweise gerade in puncto WordPress nur jedem Anwender wärmstens empfehlen.
Just did an update to WordPress 2.8.3 as advised there. It seems okay so far ;-)
A huge advantage of WordPress is e.g. the availability of a plethora of themes. You can get almost every theme possible, whether it’s more spartan or the equal to an artist fighting his very own horror vacui (aka stylish and feature rich). But with opulence comes decadence. For example, how much style is wise without sacrificing your very content? Or vice versa, how many style you can sacrifice without to chase the readers off? It’s a tightrope walk and I’m in the middle of it.
I’ve seen many nice themes, stylish but somewhat heavy and I’ve seen lots of themes more fond of KISS principle, sort of spartan. But even if I think I’ve got a proper one, there is always some caveat. Some of it are obvious, others aren’t. There are themes that look almost perfect – but pictures in an article are looking horrible. Some themes are incompatible with certain plugins, like my favorite footnotes-plugin and so on. And a small number of themes are perfect on first sight only, but they are too heavy to stand them for more than a week ;-)
So if you notice some fluctuation once in a while, don’t bother. It will not last for ever, but I certainly need some more experiments to get the perfect theme for my publication. Elegant grunge is such an almost perfect theme, but it lacks … je ne sais quoi – a certain detail I cannot name, but I will see it, if it is there ;-)
Just did the update to version 2.8 of WordPress. So far I didn’t experience any problems at all, works like a charm :-)
